How do you freeze apples?

Freezing apples for use in cooking and baking, is a great way to keep apples available all year long.  The texture of the apple, will be altered by freezing, leaving the flesh spongier than that of a fresh apple. That change in texture, doesn’t affect cooking and baking applications. The freezing method will depend on how they’ll be used later.

Peeled, cored and sliced apples can be used later in any cooked recipe. Pies, muffins, cobblers and even applesauce, can be made from frozen apples. A swivel peeler or a sturdy slicer/corer, make preparation easier.  Both peelers and slicer/corers are available to Sunrise Orchards.  

Sliced apples dipped in a bowl of water with a little lemon juice (about a tablespoon per gallon) prevents browning.  Cortland apples resist browning naturally. 

To prevent the apples from clumping, arrange slices on a plate or baking tray lined with parchment or waxed paper. Pre-freeze the apple slices between 4 hours – 24 hours, before bagging them in airtight containers or freezer bags. Date and label contents. Apples can be stored frozen for up to 1 year.

How do you know when your favorite apples are in stock?  When planning a trip to the orchard for specific variety of apples, it's always best to call (608-735-4645) us ahead of time to make sure they're available.
